The midi timepiece is an USB MIDI interface from MOTU ("Mark Of The Unicorn"). It features a lot of MIDI and related input and output ports. It is connected to the computer via USB.


The midi timepiece appears as a midi interface on the computer. So you can use it to send and receive midi messages through it (e.g. you could take a SysEx-dump from the Virus KC). But you could also use the midi timepiece as a router between the connected midi devices. For example you could redirect messages coming in on ports 3+6 to ports 1, 5 and 6. This could be done with MOTU's software "Clock Works".
